Hi Brian,

I currently work in the uk offshore industry and would highly recommend that you invest in the following:
BOSIET
MIST
Offshore medical

This will give you a route into the offshore industry whatever your background,

Whereabouts in the country do you live i can give you some details of agencies

I don't know. You said you're already 48, so if I were you, I'd stick to hnc. But if you think you can manage, then proceed to hnd level. J

At the age of 48 it is difficult to do job as the younger do.. You have to work on offshore industry as Brain said to you..
